San Jose Sharks players held their exit interviews on Saturday, and head coach Bob Boughner and interim general manager Joe Will held court today.
Will talked to us for about an hour and touched on every San Jose Sharks topic in the water, from Boughner’s future to the new GM search to a possible Marc-Edouard Vlasic buyout to a potential Brent Burns trade to Evander Kane and even what San Jose might do in terms of adding to their roster this offseason.
Will: “Much like the players, he did a really admirable job in working hard and culturally maintaining the room that we had. He was open to playing all young players. He was very involved in that and we collaborated, and that part worked well.”
Takeaway: San Jose Sharks fans have criticized Boughner for how he’s used young players this year, with some suggesting that the head coach is biased against using them. I’m not going to debate the finer points here, but it’s worth noting that the organization doesn’t appear to see it that way.
